    I Have recently upgraded most of my home cinema and now its the subs turn!!

    I have B&W 603's up front with 601's and the matching centre, being run by a sony1070, the sub is a paradigm pdr10 and i feel is being over done by the 603's so what to buy??

    I have listened to the rel quake and it sounded a bit small
    I would like to listen to the new vibe subs(has anyone got one and how does it sound?)
    or
    Has anyone either seen or listened to the new matching B&W subs yet?? Every shop i have tried they havnt had one yet

    I have a budget of upto £600ish wife depending:devil:

    It'll be worth looking at the B&W ASW675, I think it's around the £600 mark. Failing that get a mighty Velodyne from Uncle Eric, not too sure of prices.

    I've recently been looking at the Power-buy section, and spotted that the Velodyne subs are listed there at:
    CH 10 £325
    CH 15 £684
    HSG18 £2155 !!!

    But check it out for yourself.

    Might be worth checking with Richer Sounds mail order people and seeing if there are any Servo 15's left. For £600 you could get one with the X30 too.

    Cheers

    Or you could go for the other Servo 15, Velodynes CHT-15.

    Smurfin, Theres very little in it to be honest. Both are servo controlled, the servo 15 has a little more power 400w against the Velos 300watt. The servo 15 goes a little lower according to specs, but many have said the velo is a litle more controled and has far less distortion. i have a velo cht 15 and highly recommend it, although i have nevr managed to get a demo of the servo 15.
